    Boys Don't Cry (1999) director Kimberly Peirce's remake of the 1976 horror classic Carrie is set for a spring 2013 release. With ChloŽ Grace Moretz as Carrie and Julianne Moore as her evil mother Margaret White! I absolutely loved the original and with this director & cast, colour me very intrigued!

    Thoughts?

    ps: I would post a link to the imdb page but I keep getting a 'Forbidden' error.

    NEEDZ MOAR TRAILER!



    I quite like the more epic scale to it, the town got proper fucked over in the book.

    The original film is great, one of my favourite horror movies of that period (fnar).

    A remake sounds about as warranted as 'Get Carter' was. That is, not at all. Could be decent but I won't hold my breathe.

    @Ironlungs76 A made-for-TV remake already exists, I've seen it and although Angela Bettis was the perfect Carrie, the movie itself wasn't pretty... No way Peirce's version could end up being worse.

    Looks a bit shit to be honest. The original is a classic, This one looks exactly the same with slightly 'better' effects. Could be godawful.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I haven't seen the original in ages, but I seem to remember Carrie and the mom being more white trash. Julianne Moore and Chloe Moretz look like they just came home from shopping at Abercrombie.

    Oh dear, they've made Carrie a 'hot blond' outcast. I hope this film bombs and goes to Hell.

    and dies

    Whats the fucking point. The original is nothing special, but they still look like they've took everything that made it good and fucked it up.

    Hush you ponce

    Damn them. Why can't they make the exact same film with lookalikes.

    More of an issue, the trailer tells you the exact story in completely linear and obvious detail even more than most other trailers.

    Damn them. Why can't they not remake Carrie in the fucking first place.

    Don't watch it. One doesn't replace the other and there are many other films to choose from.

    I never get people's issues with remakes.

    Because remakes are about making money and not much else.

    "have you seen Carrie?"

    "yeah it sucked"

    Carrie 2 wasn't a remake, right? I mean, it seems obvious given it has a '2' beside the title, but it was almost the exact same movie only much crappier.

    It looks like they are adapting the book rather than remaking the movie, because there were a load of differences in the first movie to the book that seem to have been rectified in this, fact fans.

    Obviously there will be nods and other differences but carrie mashing up the town, her being more aware of her powers and so on are straight from the book.

    All films, other than shitty 'arty' films are about making money.

    Think I just saw the whole movie there.

    Isn't she a bit too pretty ?

    White streak in your hair must mean your mental. Moore is just too nice, they needed that hard edge.

    I love King films, usually because they are terrible.

    Carrie was alright but it's no Maximum Overdrive.

    Well yeah but remakes are creatively bankrupt from inception whereas something like Inception has had a lot of creative effort put into it but sure it makes money too.
